I might be interested ml. Supposed to be making the trip up to VT but there's a chance it will fall through.
Sundays at Sway are clutch.

i knew someone was going to get on this as soon as I had some work.
Next week is still in a holding pattern, if you want to do a day trip i'm sure there will be at least one opportunity, PM me......I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

I'm good for any day this week or next. Anyone? Anyone? The catstills ski season's life span is on the horizon!
02-25-2009, 04:54 AM #132
Oh, and hey - I'm looking for a ride up to the Adirondack Backcountry Ski Festival in Kenne Valley, NY the weekend after next. Anyone going? Also looking to split a room.

Hey gm. Any interest in Windham on Sunday? I don't have transportation (thinking nycski.com), but it'd be nice to have someone to ski with.
02-27-2009, 04:45 PM #134
windham is teh suck, i'm highly endorsing any catskills alternative......I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

Really? I've heard it was better than Hunter. I'm down for whatever I can get to.

Hey, I'm going to hop the Emilio's ski bus tomorrow to Mt. Snow. Yeah, it's kind of lame, but there's snow and they have a woods always open policy. Anyone interested?
Skis - never been to Wyndham, but will take skiing any way I can get it.

the other three pennies of nickel are mine.
windham is flat, they don't take care of the snow. really, nothing to ski there. we had a very dispointing mini there in december.
hunter is more crowded on weekends, but better terrain, better snow, closer.
belleayre and plattekill are tops if woods etc are your thing. fewer lines, more natural.
yes all skiing is good, this is just my interpretation.
monday will be the day to ski south if the forecast i just saw holds up. can't imagine the woods being so great anywhere tomorrow after the rain and hard freeze. i'm sure it will still be fun regardless......I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record
02-28-2009, 06:13 PM #138
Yeah - I'll take it where I can get it. I'll let you know how Mt. Snow holds up.
03-01-2009, 06:47 PM #139
Now that I've skied Windham, I can say that it's true that they don't take care of the snow, but it's no flatter than Hunter and it has longer runs. I think we can all agree that they both suck.
Anyone headed up to take advantage of tomorrow's potential powder day?
03-01-2009, 07:05 PM #140
Hmm. Looks like NYC is forecast to get dumped on more than upstate.
03-01-2009, 07:16 PM #141
i'm down for a 6am trip to hunter tomorrow. The west side is open and i remember those runs being 1500' sustained steeps. If they groom and get some fresh on top, it should be worth the trip.
PM me. I can pick up en route from BK......I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

How was Hunter? I'm debating hopping the Adirondak trailways bus tomorrow morning to Belleayre to check out the woods.
Mt. Snow Sunday was hard, icy and cold for the first half of the day, but I had a good time. Woods - although not soft - turned out to be the most fun. Occasional pockets of good snow.
03-02-2009, 07:54 PM #143
hunter was 8-12 of blower over edgeable crust.
great skiing really. and really cold. had some faceshots in huge drifts and amazing runs on annapurna and K27. no lines at all. tried the woods, but found lots of shit just under the surface, so i got back on the trail. belleayre gets more snow than hunter, but i would still head back there because you're probably not getting in the woods much tmo if you like your skis, they really need another dump but this snow will help soften things everywhere......I hope you know that this will go down on your permanent record

For what it's worth, I'll plus one for Windham. Steeper than a lot of VT mountains (ie. Okemo), good town (less long island, more vt feel), and a generally good vibe.
Charity race up there this weekend. www.remembermichael.com. $65 gets you two nastar runs, lift ticket, and equipment rental if you (or more likely your +1) needs it. Free booze at the bottom of the course, and an epic dinner and concert that night for $10 or so more. All proceeds support the Adaptive Sports Foundation.
We should have plenty of cars heading up if a lift is needed.

Last call for Adirondack Backcountry ski festival
I'm going to hit the Advanced tour Sunday morning and then ski Whiteface Monday. If anyone wants to split a room or rental car from Albany (leave @ Albany @ about 7pm, return to Albany Monday eve), let me know.
Rental car = ~ $60 + gas

don;t mind me, just a long time lurker....
gmdesigner, just wondering which bus were you on to Mt Snow on sunday? I was on the bus that left from 86th street. first bus trip to VT for me and it worked out okay.
03-03-2009, 09:36 AM #147
I was on the bus that went from Brooklyn and Queens. I was surprised how packed they were considering the conditions.

i think we were all hoping that the snow storm that eventually came yesterday would have come earlier-like sunday morning and reach further north-of course i was wrong on all accounts.....but the skiing was okay-classic New England conditions. maybe people bought tickets before the rain storm on friday because conditions were pretty excellent all around the north east the prior weekend. or maybe the rain wasn;t going to be THAT bad.....just amazing what 1 bad day and a deep freeze can do to trash the snow.
I was at Belleayre on sunday 2-22 and it was a pretty awesome powder day. good luck on whatever future trips you do. maybe I will see you on a future bus trip.
03-03-2009, 10:02 AM #149
Yeah - I'll do more bus trips before this season is over. I'll post em here before I go.
